You’ve probably seen a steampunk mouse before, but none that come with a pre-installed brain! Builder Peter Balch notes that “Every self-respecting Victorian Scientist needs a brain in a jar.” Can’t argue with that, can I?

Steampunk Game Boy

Today’s kids are too young to remember when the original classic Game Boy first came out some 20 years ago, but I doubt many will be fooled into thinking that it dates back to the Victorian era. It seems to have been done pretty nicely, and anybody who takes a glance at it will know that the theme is a steampunk one. Besides the exterior morphing, creator Thretris has stuffed in orange LED to replace the good old red colored one, which goes so well with the entire appearance.

10 Cool Steampunk Gadgets - Steampunk Dr. Who Dalek

EXTERMINATE! If you’ve never watched Dr. Who we apologize for the missed reference, but allow us to give you some background information. The Dalek race is a fictional organism from the popular British sci-fi show which features a tough tank-like mechanical shell and a tendency to vie for domination of the universe with a piercing electronic scream.

The Daleks are quite the celebrity in the UK and internationally among the sci-fi community, even appearing on a postage stamp in 1999. Though the Dalek has become a symbol of British pop culture, we had yet seen a Dalek piece quite like this. Designed by Alex Holden.
